Take A Private Cruise Of The Coral Triangle
Looking for a truly unique vacation destination?
From the wildlife and crystal clear bays to its rich cultural history, Indonesia deserves careful consideration for your next vacation.
More than 3000 species of fish, including the colossal whale shark, inhabit these waters. As do six of the world's seven species of marine turtles and 76% of the world's coral species. And you can experience it all from the privacy of a luxury yacht.
Chartering a private yacht is a great alternative for those of us who are not rich, but have some money to spend on a nice and unique vacation.
Southeast Asia and Oceania's Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is located between the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is the world's most populous country. This archipelago of over seventeen thousand islands includes the islands of Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, and parts of Borneo and New Guinea as well as the islands of the Pacific Ocean.
Where is Indonesia?
Airports in Indonesia
According to the 2013 statistics, Indonesia has 673 airports, ranging from grand international airports to modest unpaved airstrips on remote islands or inland interior areas throughout the archipelago's interior. The majority of them are operated by technical operation units of the Transportation Ministry and state-owned PT Angkasa Pura I and II. To improve air traffic services, the government was required by the 2009 Aviation Law to transfer management of air navigation services from airport operators to a non-profit organization by January 2012 in order to comply with the law. Many have different types of transportation to the many resorts and hotels.
Top things to do
Orangutans of Borneo
There is no trip to Indonesia that is complete without seeing some orangutans, and Borneo is a fantastic location to see these beautiful and endangered creatures in their natural habitat.
Despite the fact that orangutans still exist in the wild, several orangutan sanctuaries rescue and protect them because land development is encroaching on their natural habitat. Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan, Borneo, is home to the world's largest orangutan population, as well as other primates, birds, and reptiles. Tanjung Puting is a World Heritage Site.
You can also see orangutans in Bukit Lawang, a tourist village in the Sumatran jungle if you can't make it to Borneo. The Bohorok Orangutan Centre is located in Bukit Lawang, a tourist village in the Sumatran jungle.
Located off the coast of Lombok, the Gili Islands have become increasingly popular with backpackers and tourists over the years. These picturesque islands boast beaches that rival those of Bali in terms of natural beauty, as well as opportunities for diving and snorkeling at a turtle sanctuary, among other attractions. A turtle hatchery, where hundreds of these creatures are born each year, is a great place to go if you want to see even more turtle action.
Paddleboarding and kayaking are also popular activities in the Gilis, and if you're looking for a place to reconnect with your mind and body, you'll find several options for yoga classes. The Gili Islands offer a more relaxed, though still stimulating, an alternative to the popular Bali destination.
Komodo National Park
No one can deny that they've fantasized about seeing a dragon at least once in their lives. The komodos of Indonesia are not mythical creatures, but they are fierce and lethal animals that must be taken seriously.
In addition to the surrounding marine areas, Komodo National Park encompasses five main islands and a number of smaller ones, which are all designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The waters surrounding these islands contain some of the world's most abundant and diverse marine life.
If you visit the park, you will see komodo dragons, but you will also be able to hike through the forest, snorkel, go canoeing, and visit small villages on the islands. Pink Beach on Komodo Island is another must-see attraction. This stretch of pink sand is considered to be one of Indonesia's best beaches.
Sacred Monkey Forest, Ubud
Sacred Monkey Forest is located in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, and it is a tranquil space where you can experience the ancient majesty of the island. Ubud is also home to the Ubud Palace, which is a popular tourist destination.
There are many long-tailed macaques at this Hindu temple, which is a species of monkey that can be found throughout Southeast Asia, including this temple. The temple is also worth a visit because Balinese Hinduism, which is distinct from other types of Hinduism practiced today, incorporates aspects of several different religions. As a result, it is a fascinating place to visit.
The forest is located near Padangtegal, a small village that has long been a magnet for artists of all kinds, and a visit to the forest and village is a must-do while in Bali because of the temple, the artistry, and the breathtaking natural backdrop.
Indonesia is located on the Ring of Fire, a volcanic region that contains some of the world's most active volcanoes. Many of Indonesia's volcanoes, such as Mount Merapi, are well-known for their violent eruptions as well as their stunning, but potentially deadly, natural beauty.
Mount Bromo is one of the most well-known volcanoes in the world, thanks in large part to the breathtaking views it provides, particularly when seen standing over the caldera at sunrise. During an eruption, Bromo's peak was blown off, and you can still see white smoke billowing from the mountain's summit.
The volcano is part of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, which also includes Mount Semeru, which is the highest peak in Java and is the world's most active volcano. A remote ethnic group with roots dating back to the ancient Majapahit empire, the Teenagers live in the park and are protected by the park's laws and regulations.
